WASHINGTON APJLawyers fighting for more political power for city folks and suburbanites have gotten a big lift out of a one person one vote decision by the US Supreme Court To Charles S Rhyne former

detriment of orderly governmental processes Actually Mondays 81 decision did not deal with apportionment of state many lawyers felt it inscribed certain handwriting on the wall What it did was to

courts made a farmers vote in the least populous county worth 99 limes the vote of an Atlanta citizen This was done by providing that a governorship candidate for ex ample who carried a county got all its unit votes One result was that redgallused Gene Talmadge late governor once remarked that he never bothered to campaign in a community big enough to have streetcar tracks The system was knocked out by a lower federal court and last years Georgia primary was on a popular basis An appeal was filed however and Monday the unit system went out the window ir revocably Ferment over apportionment has spread rapidly across the na tion as a result of the Supreme Courts Baker vs Carr decision in March 1962 The court ruled then for the first time that feder al courts have jurisdiction when

approved and sent to the governor a bill that will give abutting property owners the right of free and convenient access to controlledaccess highways The vote was 90 to 8 The Senate had approved the bill earlier 38 to 7 Under the bill any abutting property owners restriction to access to a highway would have to be acquired by the Highway Commission by pur chase or condemnation A similar measure was passed by the 1961 Legislature but vetoed by former Gov Norman Erbe Proponents described the measure as protection of the rights of individuals Backers said that many lowans have complained about the commission procedures since the controlledaccess law was passed in 1955 Rep David Stanley RMus catine opposed the bill say ing it endangers traffic safety by permitting land owners to build accesses to heavily trav eled roads The House rejected 59 to 43 a bill designed to curb the number of highways that can be returned by the Highway Commission to the secondary road system of counties The bill would have lowered from 400 to 300 the minimum daily number of vehicles that a primary road must carry before the commission can transfer that road to a county The bill also would have re quired the commission to go into district court to prove justification of such transfer Landmark at Klemme destroyed by flames On the inside Editorials Page 4 Society News 9101112 North Iowa News 15
